It's just the camera angle. I enlarged it and found that the deck was deliberately built on a downhill slant. However, the camera perspective creates a optical illusion that makes the corners appear to sag.

If anything I would say that the floor is sagging in the one corner... But it may just be the angle of the picture.

OK. Is it just me or is that bridge's superstructure twisted?
